Excellent hotels. Great excursions. I greatly enjoyed the free time on Maui--the art galleries, map store and poster store in Lahaina are amazing. The others on the trip provided interesting and enjoyable company. As a solo traveler, I felt very comfortable and was welcomed by the others on the trip.


This trip was about beauty, nature, Hawaiian history and culture, and experiencing it all as close to being a local as possible. Will is simply the best! Thanks Road Scholar.


The Hawaii program was amazing! I loved the variety, the field trips, and the gorgeous scenery. The food was delicious and fresh. Now that I am home, taking my daily walks with no surfers, volcanoes, or gorgeous beaches in view just reminds me of how fabulous it was. Check Hawaii off the bucket list!


We did and saw a lot on our trip. Highlights for us were USS Arizona and touring Volcano National park with an expert. Small group was the good way to go, only 19 in our group of fun travelers. Best of all, Will the group leader, was terrific. Knowledgeable, personable and well organized. Happy travels!


This is a short trip for the distance you have to travel but is full of interesting excursions and instructors. Highly recommend this as a good introduction to the Hawaiian islands.


What a great trip. Frank and Lee were amazing leaders. The small group made the trip more intimate. Fulfilled bucket list dream of visiting Hawaii. I highly recommend this trip!


Such a thorough history of the Hawaiian islands and its people. Amazing how diverse the individual islands are! I'm so pleased to have visited 3 of them with local experts.


This program leaves a participant with a deeper knowledge of the history and present times of Hawaii. It includes a variety of experiences which help to provide that knowledge. Housing and food are good and plentiful, transportation is comfortable, leaders are knowledgeable and accomodating.


A great way to see three islands in one trip with excellent presenters on the relevant subjects: Volcanology, History, Culture, Agriculture, Geology, Astronomy, marine biology.


The trip to the three islands were marvelous and beautiful. The time spent there was life changing; for me learning of the Hawiians culture, language and history. There is so much more to see. It means that I make a second trip someday.


Beautiful way to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary! Excellent leaders that are so knowledgeable, yet approachable. You will learn about the Hawaiian culture and experience the warm, friendly Hawaiian hospitality. Jane & Bill Coleman


This is a trip that is well worth the value.


A very educational program. A great way to see Hawaii and learn about it, while meeting new people. Everything was a superb trip!


This program exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it for its high quality of leaders, instructors, subject and comprehensiveness.


If you are looking for a well organized, thorough, and enjoyable overview of Hawaii's biggest hits, this is it. There is also time for relaxing and getting in the water. You will leave with a better understanding of our 50th state.
